This is the most powerful image in my thrift shop collection of abandoned images. I remember snatching it so fast from a stack of images in a Kansas City flea market booth that I nearly ripped it. Sometimes I like to convince myself the hunchy man on the left with the camera or binoculars on his arm is Dwight Eisenhower or Bob Hope.

photographing photographs

I have a folder full of artworks/artists' files....and most of them are photographs of photographs. 
If I were an art collector, I think this would be my specialty.
